Last week I mentioned that Google Talk was XMPP based, and that you could therefore write a Google Talk IM bot using ColdFusion. Well, I’ve now done just that.
If you are a Google Talk user you can use firstname.lastname@example.org to do instant CFML lookups (tags and functions for now). Just type in the element name and you’ll get a description, syntax, and a link to the relevant page on Livedocs. Should all be pretty self explanatory.
The data needs some cleaning up and reformatting, but it works, and I am already using it for quick syntax checks.
Let me know what you think.
